Seeking Modifications or Enforcement of Divorce Orders
Life changes, including relocation, job change or an increase or decrease in income may make an original divorce order impossible. When a change in circumstances affects your financial security, you may need to obtain a modification. At Crocker·Carter·Hall, PLLC, we are experienced in handling modifications and enforcement of orders, as well as in defending clients in these proceedings. Our attorneys represent clients in Jackson and throughout Western Tennessee in complex family law litigation.
Modifications Involving Support or Custody Order Changes
Divorce orders may be adjusted by the court after a review. Post-divorce modifications may involve a decrease in alimony or child support or an adjustment to a custody or visitation arrangement to meet the needs of one or both parties. In custody and visitation cases, the court will evaluate the modification in light of the change in circumstances as well as the best interests of the children. In alimony and support cases, the court will consider whether the change in circumstances merits a modification.
Our Jackson area divorce modification attorneys are experienced with cases involving:
- Custody and support order changes
- Change in income (job loss or promotion)
- Change in visitation or parenting plan
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Endangerment to children
- Enforcement of orders
Defense in Modification and Enforcement Cases
In addition to helping our clients pursue modifications, we also are experienced in defense and enforcement of original orders. An enforcement may be necessary if your spouse is not paying child support or if he or she is in violation of a custody or visitation agreement. Our team of lawyers will review and evaluate all relevant evidence, prepare your defense and aggressively pursue your interests in court.
